Administrate vs BedquiltDB: What are the differences?
Developers describe Administrate as "Rails framework for creating flexible admin dashboards, by thoughtbot". Administrate is heavily inspired by projects like Rails Admin and ActiveAdmin, but aims to provide a better user experience for site admins, and to be easier for developers to customize. On the other hand, BedquiltDB is detailed as "*A Mongo-like JSON doc store built on Postgres *". BedquiltDB is an open-source PostgreSQL extension and set of code libraries, which wraps the PostgreSQL jsonb data type in a slick programmatic API inspired by NoSQL document stores.
Administrate and BedquiltDB belong to "Database Tools" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Administrate are:
- No DSLs (domain-specific languages)
- Support the simplest use cases, and let the user override defaults with standard tools such as plain Rails controllers and views.
- Break up the library into core components and plugins, so each component stays small and easy to maintain.
On the other hand, BedquiltDB provides the following key features:
- Simple, developer-friendly programmatic API
- Easy to write clients in any programming language, as all the "smarts" are in the PostgreSQL extension
- All the power of a SQL database, including Constraints and Transactions
Administrate and BedquiltDB are both open source tools. Administrate with 4.43K GitHub stars and 779 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than BedquiltDB with 253 GitHub stars and 9 GitHub forks.
